A very rare second set Looks Like Rain, for the time period. A few years later through the end of the band, it became quite common, but for the first 12 years the song was played, it was almost exclusively a first set number.

Nice outing from the night after Bob Marley's passing
Some excellent music here, with a very high energy China>Rider to end set 1. Set 2 is where things really takes off though, and is great start to finish. Hot versions of Shakedown and Estimated, the latter particularly triumphant during Garcia's "middle" solo. LLR is beautiful with some tasty Garcia accompaniment. The He's Gone (for Bob Marley- Weir also has some heartfelt words for him just before the Don't Ease encore), Other One, and Wharf Rat are all very good as well. Recommended show from a strong period of the early 80s.
